JULIE TAYLOR

FOUNDER PARTNER – Family & Divorce

Julie has a wealth of experience as a specialist family, children and divorce lawyer.

She had a previous career in the IT and financial sectors before becoming a solicitor and her business knowledge helps her to understand the complexities that can arise when sharing assets and is able to provide holistic practical advice.

Julie is known for her compassionate, empathetic and supportive approach to her clients; she takes the time to get to know her clients to best help them through difficult times. Julie works with high and ultra-high net worth individuals, international clients, business owners, entrepreneurs, family offices, home-makers, private clients and high-profile individuals including artists, celebrities and sports personalities.

Julie’s practice includes divorce, sharing of financial assets, arrangements for children, (including international relocation and child abduction), pre-nuptial agreements and financial provision for unmarried parents and couples living together. Julie specialises in high conflict cases that often involve people who are suffering with mental health issues, addictions and coercive control.

She has handled difficult and complex cases as well as more straightforward matters domestically and involving international arrangements for children and finances. Julie specialises in cross-jurisdictional issues that arise for families when separating. Her cases with an international element have involved jurisdictions crossing Europe, Middle East, South Africa, Asia, America.
Julie is a qualified Collaborative Family Lawyer and promotes a resolution away from the court process wherever possible via mediation, arbitration and the collaborative process so as to protect privacy and confidentiality. She is equally skilled at obtaining the right strategic outcome at court if this is necessary.

Julie provides holistic support by creating a divorce team for her clients which include at the core barristers, divorce coaches, counsellors, wealth managers, accountants and pension experts. A wider team can provide personal health and career advice with a focus on the future. This enables the client to have a smoother journey through an often difficult and emotional time.

In her spare time Julie enjoys playing tennis and walking her Labradors in the picturesque Wealden Kent countryside. Julie will be soon walking the Thames Path in aid of 1001fountaines a charity helping to bring safe drinking water to all.

“Thank you for your support and understanding, I have felt reassured and comforted by your advice and I shall be recommending you to my friends if they need family advice.”

“Thank you for your support and understanding, I have felt reassured and comforted by your advice and I shall be recommending you to my friends if they need family advice.”

“Thank you for everything you have done for me and for always making me feel better when I felt like giving up.”

“What can I say…? Such a massive thank you for all you have done for me and for seeing this awful saga through to the end. Words cannot express my gratitude for all your kindness, thoughtfulness and pastoral care. You truly are one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure to meet.”

“Inspiring! …..and thank you for picking me up off the floor when I was at the lowest ebb when I was divorcing the narcissist. A few years have gone by and am glad to report I am happy and free! Thank you for your help back then.”

“Before talking to Julie I was rather confused about what a prenuptial/cohabitation agreement actually was. Julie made it all really clear and practical – the how, when and why it is important to set up for couples before tying the knot/moving in together. I am reassured about the steps to take and while I can see it is very easy to overlook (like making a will or LPA) it’s all about being responsible. Thank you Julie!”
